WHAT IS BPH? or VPH?
BPH is short for beats per hour or some others call it VPH (Vibration Per Hour). A watch that has 28800 BPH ticks this means the balance wheel produces this many number of swings clockwise and counter-clockwise hourly. Every swing is a Tick and the number of swings per hour divided by 1 hour or 60 minutes and 60s will tell you just how smooth the seconds hand works.
ASIAN 7750 – SWISS ETA VALJOUX 7750 REPLICA MOVEMENT
This movement has subdials at 6, 9 and 12 that dictate the half hour counter, seconds, and 12 hour counter in that order. ETA 7750 movements are used in the high-end Rolex Daytona replicas with the cheaper Daytona copies using Asian clone movements. This movement is available in 3-6-9 configuration. Although many do not agree that the older 21.6kbph models are reliable, most people do believe that if the watch has running seconds at 9, and is properly maintained, it’s going to be very reliable. The main rule with an Asian 7750 is to AVOID changing the date if the time is between 10 o’clock 2 o’clock. Also don’t reset the chronos when it’s running. Performing both actions simultaneously could potentially damage the movement.
The 7750 with seconds running at 6 is similar to the running seconds at 9 version, except that it has an extra module that enables the seconds to run on the 6 o’clock sub dial. It is not very reliable, so if you decide to purchase a replica with this movement version like the one which you’ll find in a Rolex Daytona, you need to understand the risk. On the other hand if you want a Daytona replica with all the three sub dials working you have to have a genuine ETA7750 or an Asian clone of the 7750 movement in your replica watch – there is no way around it. Most of the Chronograph watches are with 7750 movements. For example, replica Rolex Daytona watch
